Hi,
Does anyone know what the S relates to in the new YS200S engine?

Thanks

Guess it is without the pump, see e.g.:
FZ175S

The picture on the YS website does show the pump in the normal position...

The manuals for the 110 vs 110s suggest the "s" is 0.5mm less in length and 0.5mm less in height.

Maybe the "s" designation stands for "short"?

Or.... maybe just like in the Superman "Man of steel" movie it's not an "S" at all, it's a symbol that means "Hope", as in Hope it runs without problems....

At the 2017 Argentina WC, I asked Yamada about future development. He said the fuel system.

Maybe that's it?

My 200's are running great. The only problem I had, as you seen, was at the TT in Tin Can Bay where a connector wire broke. Electrical fault

I've been thinking about getting a new engine. But been waiting for the new one. Maybe Yamada will have them in Italy

Yes Keith, the pump wouldn't be removed. It's way better than a pressurised system.

Are you going to Italy?

The big carbon APC prop knocked some sense into my DZ200cdi and made it usable but to be honest my enthusiasm for F3A did get blunted a lot and I haven't flown it since way back. In fact I haven't flown anything except for maybe a glider all year so far.

State titles are in a few months, so time to mix some fuel I suppose.

Hi Scott, Not this year sadly though regretting the decision a bit having seen all the new airframes coming out now! That said the Element is going well and the Akiba contra drive is something else... IMHO the best unit out there!

I guess the 200s is just a tweaked version of the 200?

Yeah, I don't think there's any room left in that crank case to go bigger. I'm guessing fuel system?
